Risk of Contamination
There is much to learn about the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Based on what is currently known about the virus, spread from person-to-person happens frequently among close contacts (within about 6 feet). This type of transmission occurs via respiratory droplets. Transmission of novel coronavirus to persons from surfaces contaminated with the virus is also possible, a process called fomites.
Current evidence suggests that novel coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in community settings. More frequent and deeper cleaning is recommended for surfaces touched frequently and by the public.
